if you couldn't counter curves the issue was between the keyboard and the chair
The Devs did say that they wanted to use Billy as sort of the power level stcik when designing new killers and reworking/buffing older killers.... when they stated this it was before the nerf. in which case they did sort of give the nod that Billy was indeed the most balanced killer in the game.. ofcourse this was like 2 years ago.
Yeah, this is the one sentence everyone uses when they try to defend old Billy. The Nerf was deserved, a Killer with such a mobility and an easy to use Instadown which also was quite forgiveable became too much over the years.
The only thing I wish they would change is the FOV, this is ######### up since they decided to change his animations at some point. It gets better with Shadowborn, but eh.
Yeah seeing billy even less than twins or hag is great. Every time I went against a billy I remember thinking how they should delete him so I can face killers who are actually fun to go against, like spirit and freddy, preferably just spirit and freddy over and over again and again and again, and my prayers were answered ❤️
No his add-ons are total trash. You have to run one overheat add-on so you’re not punished for using your power. Other examples. Shorter rev but you’re 4.4. Quicker cool down when you have a flashlight on you. After a hit you’re undetectable. They’re mostly trash
And it’s worst then a Nurse, Oni, Blight or any good snowball killer with Infectious?
Idk he isn't the only one. On the survivor side they haaaate Kate. I could write a laundry list of why I believe so tbh.
Because the update sucked lots of the old enjoyment out of them. You need to run a overheat add on to not be punished for using your power. Can’t rely on shorter dev add-one since one you become 4.4. And another you need to be pallet stunned and only for 30 seconds. You have awful animations where survivors can vanish off your screen because your fov is weakened. Hit boxes are a joke they don’t bump into things on purpose but for some reason still hit objects that don’t even touch the chainsaw. He’s not as strong as he use to but the fun in him was zapped.
And not forget map design. His high mobility feels getting more and more limited by random stuff on the map or new maps beeing designed in a way, that he can use his high mobility less than other killers.
They said those things because some of the devs didn't like Billy and really wanted to nerf him, but couldn't come up with better wording without sounding blatantly biased.
That it is also strong on Killers like Oni and Nurse does not make it less strong on Billy.
In general, Infectious Fright is a problematic Perk IMO, almost useless on most Killers and oppressive on a select few (most likely those who are already really strong).
great news ... guys who picked this killer are so funny ;)
Find a window or a pallet, it's not that hard. If you're near the survivor that just got downed, that's on you.
They nerfed him too hard / drastic... he has only some 2/3 good addons let's say, others are trash just. If i play surv, i rarely.. like very rarely see a billy... I play both surv / killer, and because of that, from like 1 week i started to play him, he is still fun.. but true, against good player he struggles a lot..
You have speed add ons, a collision add on that's under rated, the overheat add on, one that's grants undetectable. Sure a lot of dumb. But that's a killer wide problem. Not just a billy problem.
He's still a very solid and good killer
Lol the fact that you think the collision add on is good goes to show you have never actually played with it.
As it actively REDUCES THE ATTACKING HITBOX OF THE CHAINSAW!
It should be granting BP for how much it gimps your power.
Overheat is just a bad idea, You have to play perfectly or be an m1 killer. If you miss a few saws or try to get more than 1 down you just overheat and turn into an m1 killer. Please remove overheat
I never said it was good. I said it was under rated. Which it is. I've hit a few curves I wouldn't of gotten otherwise
